After 25 Years, Wild Hare to Close in Chicago

I just found out yesterday from Allison that after 25 years, The Wild Hare will be closing its doors here in Chicago.

The Tribune article does a nice recap of how the venue came to be, and how current owner Zelek Gessesse plans to head back to Ethiopia to open a new venue in his homeland.

I learned of The Wild Hare through our old co-coworker, Mulu, who co owned/ran the bar with his brother Zelek. My first (and only) time there was for our company Holiday Party, back in 2007. It was a pretty fantastic night, complete with both a ton of great people and a ton of great music as well. Looking over all the photos from the event, I’m having a lot of fun remembering the evening.

Ah, good times. Good times.

Everybody, Meet Mulu
